NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. — The first truckload of Canadian beef to enter the U.S. since the May 20 ban entered the U.S. Thursday afternoon.
The Edmonton Journal reports that a truckload of Ontario veal entered into New York. Truckloads of Canadian beef have been locked out of the U.S. since a single case of mad cow disease surfaced on an Alberta farm.
The U.S. has been issuing permits for a handful of boneless meat products which can now be exported to the U.S. The ban remains for live cattle and other meat products containing bones.
